She Persisted: Bethany Hamilton

Bethany Hamilton learned to surf when she was three years old, and she joined — and won — many surfing competitions as a child. When she was thirteen, while she was surfing one morning, a shark suddenly attacked her and bit off her left arm. She recovered, but would she be able to surf again without both arms for balance? Through hard work, courage, and faith, Bethany persisted and went on to reach her dream of becoming a professional surfer. Along the way, she used her experience to provide inspiration and comfort to surfers and non-surfers alike.

In this chapter book from the best-selling She Persisted series, award-winning author Maryann Cocca-Leffler introduces young readers to the story of how Hamilton's love of surfing helped her persevere through her recovery and show the world that they should never make assumptions about what someone can do.
